The striking Selkirk Rex's origins date back to 1987, when a kitten known as kitten Miss DePesto was born with a unique crinkled coat and curly whiskers.
Selkirk Rex cats are very quiet, tolerant, lively, balanced and intelligent.
The British Shorthair contributed the laid-back personality, the Persian added their affectionate nature and the Exotic brought a playful nature to the breed.
